Above Tomales Bay
Driving along Tomales Bay in Inverness, CA I had a bird's eye view. Down below the tide was out and the ship wrecked Tomales Bay vessel is aground. A home with a long, long walk is high on stilts. The brown hills lacking vegetation that characterize Point Reyes frame it all in. I stopped, sketched and painted the scene to the somber sounds of a bag piper standing on the shore. It was a great day to be a plein air painter.
